Meet the Author

AALL members will have the opportunity to meet the author of one of the latest articles in the Journal of Academic Language and Learning in this series of professional conversations hosted by the NSW state chapter.

The author will open the event by setting the scene and providing an update on their work. Small group discussions in breakout rooms that follow will provide an opportunity for networking and discussion of the implications of the article for AALL practice. Finally, a Q&A session focussing on questions arising in the small group discussions will conclude the event.

1 COVID-19 induced change

The article for our inaugural event is COVID-19 induced change in higher education: reflections on rapidly transitioning a first-year undergraduate academic literacies unit from face-to-face to online. Authors Raelke Grimmer, Andrew Pollard and Nicola Rolls discuss their experiences of meeting challenges and maximising opportunities during this rapid transition.

Our inaugural event will be held online at 1pm AEST on Friday 7 May 2021 (find the time in my location). Register using the form below by 1 May 2021.

Please read and reflect on the article prior to the event and be ready to engage in lively discussion.
